Guest Chefs at Restaurant Ikarus
When the Dutch two-star chef Jacob Jan Boerma is not conjuring up unusual menus in the kitchen of his De Leest restaurant in Vaassen, he travels the world with his wife Kim, in search of culinary inspiration from foreign stoves.
He learnt the latest and best cooking techniques in Spain, acquired knowledge of a variety of local ingredients while in Scandinavia, discovered exciting new ingredients and flavours in Asia, and enhanced his general gourmet expertise during trips to France and Italy, to name just a few examples. In a skilful and craftsmanlike way, Boerma translates all of these experiences into cosmopolitan and creative dishes for his sophisticated clientèle. His perfectionist mentality is evident from the way in which he prepares highly flavoursome dishes. The result? Culinary art of the very highest standard, which earned the restaurant 19 Gault Millau points and made Boerma the 2010 Chef of the Year.
